Chronic cheilitis, also known as exfoliative cheilitis and chronic actinic cheilitis, is characterized by redness, erosions, chaps and desquamation of the lip mucous membrane, which is mild, severe and persistent. Modern medicine believes that its pathogenesis is related to cold, dryness, sunlight exposure, tobacco and alcohol stimulation, licking, biting and playing musical instruments. Traditional Chinese medicine calls it “lip wind”. This disease is often found in the lower lip, but also in the upper lip, There is a history of repeated attacks. In winter and spring, there are many dry seasons. In severe cases, there are four seasons. How should we treat them? Let’s introduce the following methods:
The general treatment of cheilitis is lipstick, drink plenty of water and so on, but this method has a very big drawback is that temporary palliative, although the condition can be improved at that time, but after relapse, relapse, so cheilitis patients are always not effective treatment.
In addition, the normal life of patients with cheilitis is affected due to the symptoms of mouth damage, wound ulceration, daily diet, speech and so on. When the traditional treatment method touches the wound, the patient’s pain is intolerable, which makes the treatment difficult. So relatively speaking, the effect of traditional Chinese medicine treatment will be better.
Patients can eat more fresh vegetables and fruits. Eat more protein rich food, eat less spicy and stimulating food, not to mention the poor food pickled with industrial salt and fried with “foot oil”. It is necessary to control the diet. Have good eating habits.
Friends with cheilitis must avoid the wind and sun. They should drink more water and replenish water at ordinary times. If scab is not good for a long time, they should go to the hospital for treatment as soon as possible.
